Never seen before, the 2016 Mazda CX-3 is a brand new model for the Japanese manufacturer.
Just when you thought Mazda couldn’t do it again, they have. Their KODO-designed vehicles really have taken over the auto industry and created such a stir, that everyone, absolutely everyone, is taking note. And it’s not just about the look, Mazda’s KODO vehicles are backed up by a dynamic drive that’s also highly efficient. It might just be the perfect recipe for a perfect car. Enter the 2016 Mazda CX-3.
Never seen before, the 2016 Mazda CX-3 is a brand new model for the Japanese manufacturer. The compact crossover slots itself in nicely between the already loved CX-5 and the award-winning Mazda3 (on which it’s based). Small in size, but most definitely not in drive or personality, the CX-3 has taken the segment by storm. Offering up a lengthy warranty, all SKYACTIV technology and a look that’s ridiculously hot, this little compact crossover is a real winner.
Truly, the 2016 Mazda CX-3 is one of the best looking cars in the industry right now. Perfectly proportioned with a squat, muscular stance, the CX-3 might just have the best-looking front fascia on the market right now. Mazda’s KODO design and familiar styling cues are immediately evident. Family resemblance is key in any manufacturer lineup, and the CX-3 wears its lineage with pride and looks damn good in it.
Step inside the modern-looking CX-3 and you’ll discover an equally forward-thinking atmosphere that’s both aesthetically pleasing and extremely easy to live with. You’ll discover Mazda’s latest HMI system, with the selector knob, easy access buttons, and volume control all located near the shifter and armrest. The floating screen in the dash is easy to read and perfectly placed so as not to take your eyes away from the road when reading navigation instructions or selecting music and entertainment. Steering-wheel mounted buttons also help in this task.
Besides looking good inside and out, there’s something else the 2016 Mazda CX-3 excels at, and that’s the drive. Equipped with a truly fantastic SKYACTIV 2.0L 4-cylinder mill that’s good for 146 horsepower and the same amount of torque, the CX-3 can seriously boogie. There is only one transmission choice available, and that’s a SKYACTIV-drive automatic.
Mazda has a seriously winning combination here, as the SKYACTIV engine and transmission blend together seamlessly in the CX-3 for a dynamic and engaging drive that’s really helped Mazda make a serious name for itself when it comes to driving enthusiasts.
There are three Mazda CX-3 models to choose from, and there are both front- and all-wheel drive models available (AWD is optional on the GX and GS but standard on the GT). Offering AWD means the Mazda CX-3 isn’t just your typical small-family vehicle, but is instead a highly capable and well-rounded compact crossover suitable for everything life has to throw its way.
